Trout Lake readies for summer residents

Welcome to all the seasonal residents who are making their sojourn back to the British Columbia mountains for their annual retreats.

Welcome to all the seasonal residents who are making their sojourn back to the British Columbia mountains for their annual retreats. After our June drenching, we are all looking forward to a fabulous summer with plenty of recreational activities on and off the water.

The Trout Lake Community Club held its spring extraordinary meeting on May 19, which was attended by 37 members.

With the annual membership drive now in progress for the 2012-13 fiscal year, the Community Club anticipates the 2011-12 record of 123 members will be surpassed.

President, John Wall, announced that nominations for the 2012-2013 TLCC Director positions are now open. The positions must be filled at the annual General meeting on June 30th and if necessary, elections will be held at that time.

Trout Lake Volunteer Fire Chief, Ken Christiansen, is preparing for a pre-summer fire practice at which a number of volunteers are expected to participate.

The Trout Lake Community Hall’s insulation project was finally completed in May. Spray foam was added to the skirting around the building perimeter, which will definitely help with lowering winter heating costs and cool the building during the summer months.

A photo memorial plaque honouring George Sawczuk will be displayed in the Community Hall. George, who passed away in April, is being recognized for his contribution as a long time resident of Trout Lake and a lifetime member of the Community Club. On behalf of the Community Club, I would like to thank Milt Parent from the Arrow Lakes Historical Society who is kindly donating one of the photographs for the memorial.

A petition to pave Highway 31 between the Beaton junction and Trout Lake is being circulated at Trout Lake and the surrounding communities. This 10-kilometre stretch of gravel is troublesome not only for travellers visiting the area, but from a safety perspective and its high maintenance costs. The petition, which has already exceeded fifty signatures, will be presented to the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure this fall.

The Trout Lake BC Internet Society (TLBCIS) has now completed the primary equipment installation for coverage into the Galena Bay area. Work continues at the Beaton repeater site and TLBCIS President, John Wall, expects Internet service to be activated there in July. To date, more than forty customers have subscribed to the Internet and many others are booking appointments to sign-up for the service as they arrive for their annual vacations.

 

Cheers!
